The tenth flash sale could be the final online flash sale that Xiaomi holds in India considering the fact that the China-based smartphone company has already sold more than a million Redmi 1S smartphone units in India, ever since the flash sales began earlier in the year.
Also, Xiaomi is looking at launching a flagship device such as the Redmi Note and Mi 4 in India early next year.
According to the available information, the high-end Redmi Note is expected to feature a large 5.5in display, 20.7 MP primary camera, 8 MP secondary camera, and a 3,500 mAh battery. The smartphone is also expected to come 4G-enabled.
Nearly 100,000 Redmi IS units expected to be up for grabs during 11 November flash sale
Xiaomi, which recently overtook certain technology giants to become the third largest smartphone manufacturer, could offer close to 100,000 units of its Redmi 1S for sale, during the 11 November flash sale in India.
The increased smartphone stocks mean that you get to have a real go at purchasing the Redmi 1S this time around.
So, hurry up and check Flipkart at exactly 6 pm IST on 4 November. However, registrations will go on till 9 November.
Key hardware aspects of Xiaomi's low-cost Redmi 1S smartphone
Xiaomi's Redmi 1S is certainly a 'value for money' smartphone considering its fairly mid-range hardware aspects, and the INR 5,999 (£60, $100) price tag.
The smartphone incorporates a 4.7in IPS display, runs on the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean operating platform, and is driven by a 1.6GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor along with a 1GB RAM.
Redmi 1S also features an 8MP primary camera and a 1.6MP secondary camera. Besides, the device provides users 8GB internal storage that is expandable up to 32GB via an external microSD card.
A 2,000 mAh battery powers the entire Xiaomi Redmi 1S smartphone.
Considering the fact that 'value for money' devices are embraced in India, Xiaomi Redmi 1S challenges the recently released Android One smartphones that have a sub INR 6,000 price tag, and the Motorola E that is priced at Rs 7,000 (£70, $116).
